NMC Canticum Novum

The NMC Canticum Novum (kahn'-tee-koom  noh'-voom), meaning "new song," is a new choral offering at NMC. Canticum Novum is an auditioned-only ensemble - please see below for audition information. Canticum Novum has several performance cycles throughout the year, with an emphasis on performances in December and late Spring. Because of the challenging literature and the abbreviated rehearsal schedule, only singers with good reading skills should inquire. Registration fees for the 2013-2014 season are $125.

Contact Jeffrey Cobb for more information.
